Kentucky Can Pass Out of The Wildcat

SEC corners the market on hybrid players
Everybody, it seems, has a player or two designated to run the Wildcat formation, which is a lot like the modern-day version of the single wing.

When you can legitimately pass out of that formation, though … that's when it really gives defenses fits. Kentucky coach Rich Brooks thinks Randall Cobb, a quarterback in high school, will provide that dimension for the Wildcats.

"That's where we're a little different. Our guy can throw it," Brooks said.

Deep Florida secondary has come a long way

How deep are the Gators going to be in the defensive backfield this season?

Put it this way: They might have two of the best four or five secondaries in the league.

As many as 10 players have made a push to play, and that's being conservative.

SEC coaching carousel goes round and round

Coaching football in the SEC is a lot like signing the guest register at the Hotel California.

The Eagles sang about it in their 1977 classic, which remains one of the best rock 'n' roll songs of all time.

You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.

Likewise, coaches come and go in the SEC all the time. Head coaches. Coordinators. Position coaches.

They go from one rival to the next. They go from the Eastern Division to the Western Division. They get fired, stay away for a few years and come back. They try their hand in the NFL and come back. They explore other conferences and come back.

The common denominator is that they always come back.
